ViconNet Mobile System Requirements

Vicon Mobile is supported by a ViconNet Web and Mobile Server, which transcodes and streams video to mobile users. Several factors, including frames per second (FPS) and video source resolution, will affect server requirements.

To help estimate your needs, Vicon has created two tools to help evaluate an installation:

Calculator tool (Excel document)
Web and Mobile Server Design Guide (PDF)

It is also recommended to discuss installation needs with a Vicon Sales Representative who can help evaluate your system and confirm an accurate assessment.


Touch-and-drag display.

Simply touch-and-drag cameras from the expandable left menu to a tile within the display layout. The display layout can be configured to display from one to nine video streams.

Pinch-to-zoom to see more detail in the display.

Easily expand the video to fill the entire screen for a better view. Users can easily use pinch-to-zoom to see more detail within the camera view.
